Evening guys and gals,

On saturday me and my friends will be setting off on a colossus road trip (1900 miles.... so not that bad) from the UK to Wacken Open Air. So on the way there I'll have to take my right-hand drive Fiesta onto the right-hand side of the road! Blasphemy!

I've heard it can get pretty difficult to overtake cars because of blind spots and everything, but I was wondering if anyone who has been in this situation can shed any light or offer any pointers?

Thanks!

Make sure you trust your mate in the passengers seat, he'll have to make the calls on overtaking.

Adjust your mirrors too.

In the UK the driver is on the right hand side of the vehicle, so it's gonna be hard to see if you're also on the right hand side of the road.

Mirrors are fantastic for looking backwards, and you'd need a very long neck to not have to shift a long way into the opposite lane to see whats coming.

Never been in a situation like this (or the inverse). But it sounds scary! I wish you the best of luck. Other than that, I have nothing for you other than: Leave plenty early so you have extra time. And err on the side of caution, no matter how slow you have to go.

We don't understand why you can't drive on the same side of the road like the rest of the fricken world, either. Or why you won't brush your teeth

and don't give me that "we're too cool" bullshit.

Buy a real car. Tow your European smart car around until you get back on the left side, then drive the bugger off a ditch.

Not at all.

Left hand drive cars drive on the right side of the road, right hand drives on the left.

You can get used to it fairly quickly, just remember to drive on the correct side once you get home again

keep a long way from the car in front so you can see past them, is my advice. As well as what everyone else has said regarding repositioning mirrors.

It may be called driving on the right, but it's really driving on the wrong


stfu, everyone knows that driving on the right side of the road is the only sensible thing to do.

Take your time whenever you get to a roundabout, going around the other way to what you're used to can be pretty disconcerting.

Just remember what side to drive on! the last thing we need is a pitmonkey in a car accident!

And that'd be pretty confusing, I always drive on the wrong side of the road in GTA

How about renting a car that's not backwards? Then any problems are your own fault.
